The students’ health and safety is important to us!
It is not always easy to decide whether to leave a child at home or send him/her to school when he/she first shows possible symptoms of a sickness. We want to guarantee a healthy environment for all students and teachers. Therefore, we have established the following guidelines.
Please do not send your child to school if the following symptoms occur:
- A body temperature of more than 38 degrees Celcius (The child can come back to school once he/she has been free of fever for 24 hours without having taken antipyretics).
- Nausea, vomiting or diarrhea within the past 24 hours
- Severe earache for more than one day
- Headache and limb pain
- Persistent, productive cough / dizziness / tightness in the chest
- Unidentifiable and unexplainable skin rashes / swellings
- INFLUENZA: If a student shows any typical symptoms of influenza, he/she should see a doctor or stay at home.
- Lice or eggs (nits): Please note that students who suffered from head lice infestations or infectious diseases such as chickenpox etc. must present a medical confirmation BEFORE they come back to school.
- If a student has started taking antibiotics, he/she must wait 24 hours (in the case of some sicknesses even longer) before he/she can come back to school.
